Full exposure: camera club exhibits

Beautiful photographs taken by Hume residents are set to be showcased in September and October as part of the Craigieburn Camera Club’s annual exhibition, titled A Moment in Time.

The spectacular images will be displayed at Gee Lee-Wik Doleen Gallery, located within the Hume Global Learning Centre – Craigieburn, on Central Park Avenue.

Hume Mayor, Councillor Adem Atmaca, encouraged everyone to pencil in a time to visit the exhibition.

“This is a terrific show for anyone who loves to look at a photo and escape to another place,” Cr Atmaca said.

“Every photo will take the viewer on a journey, and this year’s exhibition will feature almost 50 different images, including grand landscapes, detailed nature, architecture and portraiture.

“They have been carefully produced by 24 members of the camera club, and each entry shows a photographer’s passion and inspiring talent for this visual art form.”

The Craigieburn Camera Club commenced three years ago, and now encompasses a total of 60 members.

The association meets once a month so that people of all ages can learn more about photography, and share their skills and experience.

Cr Atmaca said the club offered a tremendous opportunity for anyone who was interested in a professional or amateur career as a photographer.

“This is a club that encourages its members to have a go, and people don’t need any previous experience behind the lens to join up and participate,” he said.

“Its regular get-togethers provide advice on how to take that perfect shot, and ways to edit images on a computer.

“The members also share handy hints on great places around Melbourne for photography, and there is also plenty of information on how to care for your camera.”

Craigieburn Camera Club runs a number of field trips to help people learn different ways to get the most out of their camera.

Cr Atmaca said he was certain that the skills taught through the club would be on display at the A Moment in Time exhibition.

“We really are in the era of the photograph, because people have access to cameras like never before,” he said.

“The quality of digital cameras continues to increase, and more and more people have the opportunity to not only take photos, but make photos.

“This exhibition offers everyone a chance to see digital artwork produced by some of Hume’s most creative residents, and I thank the Craigieburn Camera Club for organising a terrific show.”

Hume City Council has supported the Craigieburn Camera Club via a community grant.

A Moment in Time will start on Thursday 3 September 2015 and run until Sunday 25 October 2015.
